This event is a unique all adult camping outing with activities of all varieties, participants are bound to find something they enjoy. Meals are included in the $25.00 registration fee and activity sign-ups are completed after initial registration.  Read what participants have said in the past:  

  • “I liked the chance to get to know new people in a fun and relaxed atmosphere”
  • “I thought the Mocktail Luau was a great way to rehydrate after a hot day of activities and gave us a time to mingle with our newfound friend we had met at programs throughout the day.”
  •  “Outstanding program. Lots of great tips for planning trips with troops or groups of adult scouts.”
  • “I felt pampered and appreciated. I loved the hot showers, flush toilets, cots in shelters, swimming pool, proximity to river. Someone else preparing and cleaning up meals. Games after dinner. WOW! I felt like I was 12 and back at camp myself!”

The cost of the event is $25.00 per person which covers all food and materials. Space is limited. Participants are emailed in late June to select activity sign-ups electronically.
